BEACHFRONT HOUSE IN THE BEAUTIFUL MOONHOLE NATURE PRESERVE

Bequia House Rental Photos and Description

Large living area, whalebone bar, interior gardens, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms

Designed for beachfront living, the Generation Gap House rises from the beach to the treetops. The house is built around a lush tropical garden. The main living area contains a whale rib bar, a large heart shaped dining table that seats 8, and another table overlooking the sea. A curved outdoor seating area overlooks the central garden. There are sun decks outside the main living room and adjoining each bedroom.

The many windows and arches of the main living area frame a panoramic view of Petit Nevis, Isle a Quatre, Pigeon Island, Mustique, and the Southern Grenadines.

Massive tropical vines cascade over the stone walls that surround the tropical garden where young fruit trees and palms shoot up toward the sky. With three bedrooms on three different levels and more than 4,000 feet of living space, Generation Gap is one of the larger houses at Moonhole. Relax on the decks or the chaises on the private Moonhole beach below.

Tom Johnston and his crew broke ground on this house decades ago, envisioning a relatively small house. With encouragement and backing from a friendly homeowner, Tom expanded his vision for the house. It soon evolved into a towering structure, rising more than 80 feet from the beachfront bedroom to the uppermost level. Moonhole Company has recently renovated the house, adding solar power, hammocks,new furnishings, and some of Tom's unique whalebone sculptures.

The house sleeps 6 comfortably and a day bed in the Queen bedroom's anteroom can accommodate a child.
